Suwanee Offers Emergency Weather Notification

The city has CodeRED, which will deliver alerts via phone, text, or email. Sign up on the website.

With all the severe weather in Suwanee and Gwinnett recently, it's worth noting again that emergency notification is available via all technology.

a notification system that is meant for use in conditions like those of Wednesday (January 30), which has seen a tornado watch and severe thunderstorm warning.

The system, which was launched last September, offers:

  • General information: People can sign up for alerts on events and non-emergencies.
  • Weather: These are issued through CodeRED, not the city.
  • Emergencies: These would be issued by the city. Allen said there would be a "high threshold" for these, terming this for a "bona fide emergency," on such things as a water main break.

People can sign up and learn more about the system on the city website.

I just got a text on my smartphone. Any port in a storm, as they say. :)
